System Ultra Wood Shelving by Poul Cadovius for DK3

System Ultra Wood Shelving


Designed by Poul Cadovius. In 1957, the Danish designer and manufacturer Poul Cadovius launched System Ultra® as a successor to the iconic and successful Royal System® from 1948.
The design is based on the same wall-hung principle as its famous predecessor, but it has its very own visual identity, featuring
 elegant, ultra-thin shelves, with a wave-shaped edge profile. System Ultra® won a medal at the 1957 XI Triennale in Milan - a highly treasured design prize.

System Ultra® has wooden wall-mounted rails, and ultra thin components in either Oak or Walnut with an oiled finish.

System Ultra® offers the possibility to customise the shelving, and to extend it over time according to changing needs. Try the online configurator here to plan your own design - or contact us for advice.
For 2024, dk3 are also relaunching the elegant rippled glass door cabinets.


Rails: solid wood in oak/oil or walnut/oil
Wooden components: moulded veneer in oak/oil or walnut/oil
Hangers: Brass, Stainless steel or Black Powdercoated steel
Clothes Rail in Black Powdercoated steel
*Note the wood used for the SYSTEM ULTRA® rails contains more natural elements such as more visible wood grain, mirror (oak), sapwood, and putty-filled knots than the wood used for the ROYAL SYSTEM® rails.

Wall Rails: H70/100/200 × D2 × W3 cm
Shelves: H7 × D22/35 × W72 cm - thickness 7mm
Cabinets with 2 sliding doors H42 × D35 × W72cm (include 1 internal shelf)
Clothes Rail: W68cm

The shelves may deflect slightly over time. To maintain a straight profile, dk3 recommend a max load of 15 kg per shelf. Fluctuations in temperature and light incidence may influence the integrity of the shelves.
